Whether you’re a die-hard Brussels sprouts lover or a hater, it’s hard not to see the appeal of these irresistible crispy, cheesy bites. We coat them in a cheesy, garlicky mixture before baking on a high heat, giving them an ultra-crispy crust perfect for dunking in homemade Caesar dressing. They're so easy to whip up, only taking around 30 minutes for a delicious side everyone will be grabbing for. Try spearing them with toothpicks and turning them into a bite-sized app for your next party too!
Ready to dive into these crunchy, crave-able sprouts? Read on for some of our top tips on making these deliciously roasted Brussels sprouts:
Can I make these the day before?
Honestly, we wouldn't recommend it. These sprouts are best served immediately, hot out of the oven, and will lean more soggy and less crispy the longer they sit. If you do make a batch and have some leftovers you want to reheat, we recommend putting them back in the oven on a high heat instead of the microwave.
What other dipping sauces can I use?
The options are endless! We think almost anything pairs well with these cheesy bites. Homemade marinara and ranch dressing would also be perfectly dippable, or even avocado ranch if you're feelin' crazy.
Can I make these in the air fryer?
No prob! If you want to make these in the air fryer instead of the oven, make sure to spray or line the bottom of your air fryer so none of that delicious crust sticks to the bottom. Also, cook your batches in a single-layer so every sprout gets equally crispy. You can also follow our handy air fryer conversion guide for all the best tips and tricks on temp and time to convert practically any recipe to your trusty fave appliance.
